Music at CCES

3rd Grade Concert: the CCES 3rd graders will be performing their concert “I Had An Old Coat” on Tuesday, March 8th at 6:30 PM. Students should to their homerooms between 6:00 and 6:20 to get lined up and ready. More information about the concert will be sent home soon.

To celebrate Music In Our Schools Month, Mr. DeStefano has created an interactive bulletin board. It is located between the two music rooms and across from the gym. Starting on Monday, February 22nd, a different question will be posted asking students to think of songs that remind them of certain people, places or events. For example, it might ask, “What song reminds you of your parents?” Students can write the song title and artist on a sticky note and post their answers on the bulletin board. Alongside their answers there will also be pictures of teachers with QR codes. Students can scan the QR codes and watch short videos of each teacher’s answers to the questions. Mr. DeStefano will even be tweeting out the questions on Twitter in case parents want to send in their answers. Just follow Mr. DeStefano (@MusicAtCCES) and look for #MIOSMatCCES.
